The Token SNL Post

Every time I do a search for Saturday Night Live skits (which is like CONSTANTLY, right?!) , I inevitably end up on someone's blog. Naturally, I'm stealing the idea. I'll say right away that I'm not a SNL aficionado; however, I do like to sit in front of my laptop and zone out on funny videos. Hopefully long enough to get a little drool to collect in the corner of my mouth.

Assuming you feel the same way, I tossing out my Top 5 SNL videos. But remember, I hardly watch the show*, so don't be all, What? What about the Akroyd Era, dumbass?! Because I'm not even "with it" enough to just to "commercials" or "skits." It should only follow that I have no concept of spacing them out to capture the best of each era. This is a post of convenience for everyone involved. So enjoy, biznitches.

The "Down By the River" one, because when Chris Farley died, I got a little misty. Then I got drunk. What? It was college:



The "More Cowbell" one, because Jimmy Fallon's inability to keep a straight face somehow doesn't ruin the comedy here:



The "Lazy Sunday" one, because two white men rapping is always meant to make you smile, not dance:



The "Crystal Gravy" one...uh, we definitely drank Crystal Pepsi in our house. We also bought rainbow bread. Got a problem with that?:



And, the "Schweddy Balls" one, because I'll never know how Alec Baldwin keeps a straight face here. Also, because now that I watch 30 Rock because it's "INTELLIGENT" comedy, I can appreciate his art. Or something. Okay, fine. It's because it's BALLS humor:

*I was, however, once invited by a creepy-writer-type-and-utter-stranger to go "hang out" with the cast during one of the tapings. I declined. Because I'm classy. Oh, and was dating The Husband. That Monday, the creepy-writer-type-and-utter-stranger emailed me pictures of him with Andy Samberg and Al Gore. I'm not sure, but I think that was his way of saying "You'll never be as cool as me anyway, bloggergirl!" Pssht. Sure showed him.

  2. Sweet! Lazy Sunday and More Cowbell make me happy, lol.

    @Mr. C. - Remember how Norm MacDonald would always harass him on the 'Weekend Update'? e.g. his 'lucky stabbing hat'.

  3. Wasn't Dick in a Box from SNL? That's my favourite one.

  4. I think Christopher Walken needs to be stuffed when he's dead and then he should have one of those recorder units of his own catch-phrases sewed into his body cavity. Out of respect.

  5. Living in Iowa, we don't suffer the disappointment of missing an opportunity to interact with celebrity's. Except for Larry the Cable Guy, he seams to be everywhere you go in Iowa?

  6. these are all gems, i do also love the macgruber one where he finds out about the stock market :) i am thoroughly impressed that you found crystal gravy! i recently spent way too much time looking for that one and kept getting those 'this video has been deleted for copyrite infringement' notices.

  7. My mom LOVED Crystal Pepsi. She loved Pepsi in general though. Every night she'd put us to bed (strict bedtime), turn on the t.v.(we weren't allowed to watch t.v.), crack open a two liter of pepsi (you guessed it, no pop for us) and you could almost hear her sigh with delight.

    I talked about you in my blog. At the bottom YO! Look harder! Come on!

  8. The down by the river skit is my all time favorite SNL skit. I never stop laughing hysterically at it- and then anything with Christopher Walken, but something about that guy makes me laugh even if he's doing nothing.

    I'm pretty sure Christopher Walken would not take that as a compliment.

  9. No, I totally thin the Schweddy Balls skit was our warning of the great things Alec Baldwin would do years later on 30 Rock. The man is damn good.
    Also, Lazy Sunday, is brilliant.

  10. cowbell is probably my favorite. not because of will ferrell but because of chris parnell. he was very underrated.

    i think that is the most serious i've ever gotten on a blog. makes me feel old and professor-ish.

    boogers.

    there, i'm back.

  11. Debbie Downer. Hands down. The first skit they did was the one at disneyland, and seeing Horatio Sanz wiping tears of laughter off his face with Mickey-shaped pancakes was amazing.

  12. I wish I could see all of these but we can't get Hulu in Canada because Canadian broadcasters are in league with Satan and should be added to the Axis of Evil list.

  13. Mr. C: Nope, I haven't! I'll go look for it now. This is what I meant about being completely unaware about this show.

    Eric: So, by default, *I* make you happy! Win!

    Mr. L: Yes! I was just trying not to love on Samberg too much. But I've definitely taken a few photos of my kids and titled them "My kid in a box"! Because it's inappropriate.

    Kurt: Funny, because that's what we were going to do to our cats, but then once they were dead, we realized they couldn't talk. So we bought a singing bass instead.

    Jerrod: I hear you. Parnell is like the Mother Theresa of SNL. Or, like, the color Aquamarine in the Crayola box. Or, the pink socks of your sock drawer.

    Sally-Sal: Another one I'm going to look up.

    CD: Shit. I guess you think I'm an inconsiderate American now, don't you? Freaking Canadialand.

  14. Frankenfinger: Since my son LOVES Cars the movie, I'd probably pay to see that guy. And then my son would probably just cry out of confusion and trauma.

    Lana: I don't think I've seen that one either! Is it clear that I rarely watch this show? Also, I think the Crystal Gravy was like the first link I found. Hehe. :)

    erin: Sweet! I love when girls talk about me! It either means they like me, or I smell!

    Not Benny: I'm sure you've seen that Fat Boy Slim video, right? Soooo great!

    Walter: Exactly! I want him to come play at my house! I'm pretty much Liz Lemmon, just less successful and probably more socially awkward.

  15. I know you said not to harass you with whines of 'wahhhhhh, why didn't you say THIS one??' But F that, man! All my fantasy teams are doing shite right now, so goddam it, you're getting harassed (sp?):

    How dare you not mention these: 'Taco Town'...'Bad Idea Jeans'...'Gatorade: cookie dough flavor?'

  16. We still sing the commercial for the three-legged jeans at our house.

    "A leg and a leg and a leeeeeeeeeg..."

  17. Brian: IILLLK! Was Taco Town the one where the wrapped the taco in a pancake? That one probably could have been included. Maybe. As for the cookie dough one...ilk. I'm more nauseous than amused.

    Pearl: That's another I haven't seen. Now I have something to do tonight other than drool on myself while watching The Real Housewives re-runs.
